The bright, bold, colorful, and crowded illustrations of the forest drew us to this book from the first page. The repeated question of "Who's in the forest, dark and deep?" and the peek-a-boo hole that shows a glimpse of the answer make every page turn exciting. The peek-a-boo hole will not only give your child a place to explore with his fingers, but also a grip to help turn the page. These aspects will push a child through the book quickly, but all the detailed pages will certainly bring him back.

This book repeats the question, "Who's in the forest, dark and deep?" As your child grows with this book, he may know the answers. Let him guess, shout it out, or even point to the animal framed in the hole. Praise him each time he does this. He has answered a question or solved a problem. This is a very exciting part of his development. You can help him make this step by showing him the animal framed in the peek-a-boo hole. This is also a great book for your child to look at alone in between readings, as there is so much in the pictures to explore. The hole and how it frames different animals will be entertainment enough.
